Culinary Cooking Classes with Joanne Weir

Teaching is what I love to do most! I realized that a long time ago when I taught fine art to high school kids in Boston. Though I liked it, I quickly realized that my students weren't quite as excited about art as I was! Luckily food is my other passion, and when I paired the two, teaching and food, I found what I love to do most and that's to teach cooking!

My approach to cooking can be wrapped up in three words - simple, seasonal, and local. But then of course there’s always kind of a Mediterranean slant. I happen to love that part of the world. Maybe that’s because I love recipes that are simple but with great results - without spending hours and hours in the kitchen. Some of my favorite recipes have less than 5 or 6 ingredients and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. Don't get me wrong - I also love a slowly braised stew with lots of fork-tender meat and vegetables or a luscious fresh berry pie that I spent a few hours to prepare.

Mealtime around the Mediterranean is a big part of daily life and small plates are the perfect way to bring people together.
